EC3 found a lot of success during his run with Impact Wrestling. He was one of the company’s top stars, and he went on to become World Champion during his time with Impact, but earlier this year he decided to part ways with the company.
It wasn’t long before he was signed to NXT, but after he made a quick appearance at NXT TakeOver: Philadelphia, several weeks went by before EC3 did anything NXT related.
That all changed this week when he made his big debut at Full Sail University during the NXT tapings, and Thursday night he made his in-ring debut for the brand.
The former Impact Wrestling World Champion was in action at the NXT live event in Dade City, Florida, and he managed to defeat Kassius Ohno in his debut match.
You can check out some pictures from his debut below.

Now that he has officially made his debut, it looks like EC3 will be making an impact (no pun intended) in the weeks to come.
He’s set to compete in a big match at NXT TakeOver: New Orleans the night before WrestleMania, and you can get more on that here.
